If you’ve been reading along for a while you will know how much I love Tess’s line Pewter and Pine. Not only is Tess as sweet as she can be, she is such a talented designer. You may remember when I interviewed her earlier this year.
I reached out to Tess this past March at the Spring Needlepoint Show to see if she would be interested in designing an exclusive for Needlepoint.Com. She had so many fun ideas that ultimately, we ended up deciding that a pair of ornaments was even better than just one! Our On Safari series is made up of an exclusive elephant and zebra ornament- only available through Needlepoint.Com.
I had the best time coming up with a really fun stitch for the elephant, and I loved adding Turkey Work to the mane and tail of the zebra. I think these would be so sweet framed or appliquéd to a pillow in a little kid’s room. The ornaments themselves are slightly larger than a standard ornament. They are 5″ rounds instead of 4″ rounds which would make them perfect for this. And the bright colors really bring them to life.
I wanted to go ahead and share them with you all here on Stitch Style before they get promoted. We have a very limited number of these kits available, and I don’t want you all to miss out. As always, the kit includes a hand painted canvas, a word processed stitch guide, all threads needed to complete the project and access to class videos that never expire.
